Set in the rural prairies in the 1920s, the story of the Flesher descendants that have occupied Rutherford Manor for generations is a long history of patriarchs who specialize in the butchery trade. This ancestral occupation bore roots in the butcher shops of Scotland and Germany, their craft has been honed for hundreds of years. The Flesher Clan was known for their unusual ability to provide for their communities through many difficult and trying times.
The new generation of Fleshers and their partners in darkness, the Savidges, have now arrived in the new world. Ready for fresh opportunities in a new land the Fleshers set down roots in the midwest during one of the hardest times in North American history, The Great Depression. Used to finding the opportunity in adversity, the family thrives in this dark time with all the calculated terror, extreme experimentation, and madness that their family embodies.
